    5.0 - Excellent

    I travelled solo on the guided cycling tour Highlights of Holland by Barge. I booked as twinshare to be paired up with a same sex traveller but ended up having the cabin to myself, as the barge was only half full for this week. The food was always plentiful and tasty, perfect to fuel and refuel for a day out & about cycling. The crew were friendly and the Category B+ barge was comfortable while cozy with ensuite cabins. The guide, Koen, cycled with us each day and had good local knowledge with always a story to share. The cycling was leisurely and peaceful through typical flat Dutch countryside on dedicated cycle paths or quiet roads via quaint towns and villages. Vehicles were always courteous to us so safety was never an issue. Keep an eye on those headwinds though as they can sure add a little more fun to the cycling! Rain is also a possibility in Holland, so best to be prepared with the right gear. The bikes were comfortable and well maintained, with the crew helping out for any adjustments. It was interesting sailing through locks and learning about the mechanisms. The evenings were well spent wandering around town with free time – and the opportunity to eat more well-deserved apple pie! Thanks UTracks for a great week in Holland.

    Can we bike half the daily recommended km (20 km a day instead of 40 km). Or do we have to decide in the morning that we will bike the whole day, the full 40 km?

    If you decide not to cycle the distance laid out for the day, you can hop in a cab (with bikes) and transport yourself to the meeting point with the barge, the cost for this will be your own. Another alternative would be to consider an e-bike, get the 40 Km done quicker.

    1. How your radar kept track that I was interested on a particular trip and I got both a reminder and a notice that the trip was being discounted. 2. I enjoyed the after sale experience with the internal chat tool. Felt personalized.
